Many societies consider yellow a sacred color, closest to heaven and enlightenment. Throughout history, numerous rulers have chosen yellow as their royal color, from the gold encrusted Ashanti of West Africa to the five legendary emperors of ancient China. In Greek mythology, yellow was the color of Apollo, god of the sun, wisdom and nobility. Maybe I should include yellow and gold here as well.

I love color!!!!
